Manchester United face Rochdale at Old Trafford in the third round of the League Cup.
It’s only the second time the League 1 side will have visited Old Trafford, the first being an FA Cup tie in 1986 in which the Reds won 2-0.
It’s a very favourable tie for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who will be able to rotate his squad against considerably weaker opposition.
The League cup is one of United’s best chances of silverware this season, but it’ll be great to see youngsters such as Angel Gomes and Tahith Chong get invaluable minutes in the competition.
Rochdale go to @ManUtd for only second time in their history. First was 1986. Alexis Sanchez has missed out on that.
